Hardbound in green cloth with illustrated dust jacket. This, the first book on Francis Bacon, is a well-documented study of his life and work, and is likely to remain the basic, indispensable monograph.

SIGNED by Matthew Barney.

Prestel Verlag, Munich, and The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 2009. First Edition. Quarto 12.25 x 10.25”. Hardbound with illustrated dust jacket. A special fold-out poster created exclusively for the hardcover edition is included. Publisher’s description: A major figure in contemporary art, John Baldessari is widely considered one of the most influential artists to emerge since the mid-1960s. From his early text-and-image paintings to his more recent photo collages and installations, Baldessari has continued to make art that addresses the social impact of mass culture, often playfully through strategies of appropriation and deconstruction. Baldessari’s lifelong interest in language, written and visual, and the interaction between the two, raises questions about the nature of communication and perception. More than 400 illustrations are presented in full color in this monograph published in conjunction with a major exhibition organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Tate Modern in London.

JMc & GHB Editions, New York, 2007. Deluxe Edition limited to 50 signed and numbered copies. Octavo 9.75 x 7”. Hardbound in blue Japanese cloth covered boards with slipcase. Publisher’s description: Drawing Restraint Volume IV includes drawings related to Drawing Restraint 9, a film set on a whaling vessel in the Sea of Japan that features Matthew Barney and his partner, the musician Bjork (who also scored the film). Barney’s exquisite drawings are surrealistic evocations of the film’s nautical setting, Japanese ceremonies, and aquatic transformations. The book also contains the first published images from Barney’s latest project, Drawing Restraint 13, which he filmed at Barbara Gladstone Gallery in the spring of 2006 and publicly screened for the first time at his SF MoMA retrospective last fall.

31) Perspective of Nudes Bill Brandt Introduction by Chapman Mortimer Preface by Lawrence Durrell Amphoto, New York, 1961. First US Edition. Quarto 11 x 9.75”. Hardbound with illustrated dust jacket. “These startling images rewrote the language of nude photography in not one, but several quarters. Brandt’s approach was primarily formal, but his own sensibilities, combined with photography’s tendency to overwhelm form’s purity with life’s impurities, ensured that his nudes are as interesting for their psychological undertones as for the wealth of unexpected forms he conjured.” Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History, vol. 1 pg. 216.

Hardbound in illustrated boards. 146 b&w photographs. “In the wrong hands the subject of the transvestite can be voyeuristic. It is to the credit of the Genoese photographer Lisetta Carmi that she never goes for the cheap shot as she explores Genoa’s transvestite quarter. This book is a serious study that makes an attempt to understand and empathize with the social and sexual phenomenon of the transvestite.” – Parr & Badger, The History of the Photobook, Vol. 1, pg. 228

Condition: Some soiling to jacket, small tear along bottom edge, tiny chip to crown; book is Near Fine.

C M Lerici Editore, Milan, 1959. Quarto 11.5 x 9.75”. Hardbound with illustrated dust jacket. 135 b&w photographs. “Carrieri, a leading Italian photojournalist and cinematographer abandons all other projects and commissions for two years to photograph Milan in a raw, honest, cinematic style. Carrieri digs deep into the hardest city in Italy, generally confining himself to the city’s more gritty details.” --Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History vol. I, pg. 214

36) The Lines of My Hand Robert Frank

Gylendal, Copenhagen, 1996. First Edition. Quarto 9.75 x 12”. Hardbound in red cloth covered boards with dust jacket. 60 b&w photographs. “The most notable thing about Drum, is not that the bulk of the book was photographed in a single evening with only three rolls of 35 mm film, but that it is, nevertheless, so good. The evening in question was spent in a pub in Drum in rural Ireland and Krass Clement concentrated on one principal character- a hunched, weatherbeaten old man, who sits alone with his drink. We have all seen that man in a pub somewhere, and the book is entirely contemporary in sentiment - a biting comment on community, the outsider, alienation and the terrors of being alone.” --Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History vol. II, pg. 81

Yugensha / Kazuhiko Motomura, Tokyo, 1972. First Edition. Folio 14 x 10.25”.

The most renowned edition was brought out in 1972 in Japan by Yugensha, Tokyo, the first of a trio of notable books in deluxe format designed by Kohei Sugiura and sponsored by Motomura. The Lines of My Hand might be said to be Robert Frank’s first retrospective monograph, but he doesn’t make conventional monographs. Everything he does is a diary, a confession. Nevertheless, the book follows a broadly chronological path through his photographic career…” –Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History vol. I, pg. 261

Condition: Small nick to rear flap of jacket, heel and front lower corner of book is very lightly tapped, extremely faint damp staining to lower corner of front board, else a nice copy.

38) Megalopolis: Los Angeles, Mexico, San Paolo Paolo Gasparini Text by Victoria de Stefano

SIGNED by Jason Fulford.

Centro di Ricerca e Archiviazione della Fotografia (CRAF), Gradisca d’Isonzo, 2000. First Edition. Folio 15 x 8.25”. Spiral-bound hardcover. “Megalopolis continues a theme that has occupied Gasparini for many years: the political and economic impact of the United States on Latin America. The volume is spiralbound, and every page is cut into three horizontal sections, each depicting a different city. These can be turned in any order so that a different combination of six images across a double page is brought up each time, and we never know which city we are in. Gasparini is making the point that the all-embracing consumer society of the United States, based on the hegemony of the automobile, the ubiquity of global brands and the anonymity of modern corporate architecture, has drained large metropolises of their uniqueness, producing a worldwide urban culture that has more in common with similar conurbations elsewhere than with their own hinterlands.” --Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History vol. II, pg. 120-1

The Soon Institute and Jason Fulford, Amsterdam, 2010. First Edition limited to 1,000 copies. Quarto 9.5 x 12.5”. Hardbound with dust jacket. Publisher’s description: It all started when a friend of Fulford’s gave him a manila envelope, found at a flea market, full of anonymous photographs of mushrooms. The mushroom images stuck in Fulford’s mind, like a bad song sometimes does, and they started to grow in his own work. The Mushroom Collector combines the original flea market pictures with his own photographs and text about the project. Condition: Fine.

Hardbound with illustrated cardboard slipcase. Ishimoto’s second book, Chicago, Chicago finds the artist returning to his place of artistic ‘birth’ at the height of his powers, using to the fullest all of the tools and skills that the Institute of Design and this city had taught him. Chicago is a city Ishimoto had a deep affection for and he attempted, with this book, to describe this place in all its nuanced vitality, its history and culture, to portray the larger truth of Chicago in the turbulent 1960s. He succeeds in capturing this Chicago, but not because of the clumsy scraps of reality inherent in photographs, but through the integrity of his vision and genuine emotional connection with the place.

49) Shashin Tokkyubin: Tokyo (Photomail from Tokyo) Keizo Kitajima Parol-sha, Tokyo, Japan, 1980. First Edition. Quarto 10 x 7.25”. Softcover stiff wrappers with illustrated dust jacket. Beginning in 1979, Keizo Kitajima staged a series of twelve month-long exhibitions at a gallery space known as CAMP. For every exhibition he published a small staple bound leaflet, Shashin Tokkyubin: Tokyo 1-12. Each month Kitajima changed the format of the exhibitions, using various unconventional prints and presentation. The images focus on the nightlife of Tokyo or more specifically the nightlife of Kitajima and are predominately populated with visitors of CAMP and individuals in his milieu of photographers, thus he created a closed loop where the means of presentation became the process of creating the work. Over a year of creating his monthly leaflets, Kitajima had generated enough material to create this book, which he dubbed a compilation volume of the twelve leaflets. -Kaneko & Vartanian, Japanese Photobooks of the 1960s and 1970s, pg. 222-7.

50) Seydou Keïta Edited by André Magnin Text by André Magnin and Youssouf Tata Cissé Scalo, Zurich, 1997. First Edition. Quarto 11.75 x 9.5”. Hardbound with jacket. All text in French. Publisher’s description: What began as simple curiosity blossomed into an object of national pride; when Seydou Keïta bought a camera to take pictures of his family, neighbors assumed his services were for hire and enlisted him to take portraits of themselves and their homes, turning a carpenter into a photographer and a hobby into artistic expression. In such a way did the self-taught Keïta become the official photographer of Mali from 1962 to 1977, based almost solely on his impeccable reputation for quality and originality that developed by word of mouth. This stunning collection of 206 black-and whiteportraits illustrates Keïta’s pride in his country and his gift for capturing the personalities of his subjects. Condition: Fine in Fine jacket.

This is the very scarce hardbound edition that was issued simultaneously with the first printing of the more common softcover edition. “Contrary to most of the other sociallandscape photographers, who snatched life on the streets as they found it, Lyon photographed communities from the inside, making them an integral part of his life for the duration of the project, and even afterwards. The Bikeriders represented a significant step in 1960s American photography, not only launching an important photographic career, but also giving a younger generation of photographers a spokesman of their own age.” --Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History vol. 1, pg. 256.

Moriyama took these photographs and combined them brilliantly with images of other types of urban outsiders to make a metaphor of theatre-as-life and life-as-theatre. He sought the world of the hipster, the freak, the ‘other’, from the avant-garde Terayama theatre group, which featured nude women, dwarfs and burlesque characters of all kinds, to the more vernacular nightlife of the city, the strip joints, gangster bars, and backstreet Kabuki theatres, a fusion of the old and new, high and low, insider and outsider, freak and non-freak.” --Parr and Badger, The Photobook: A History volume I, pg. 288 Condition: Cardboard slipcase has some fraying to edges, light soiling and toning, light sunning to spine of book with some rubbing, small stain to rear cover, top rear corner creased, else a very nice copy of this fragile book.

From the text: “No one has seen a bull exactly as Picasso sees him, as he displays him. His bulls are real bulls; bulls not oxen; wild creatures, vibrant with life and with incalculable strength; proud courageous animals with ferocious impulses- the true image of a bull, translated from the artist’s memories of all the bullfights that he has witnessed. Picasso evokes these memories and obliges us to share his impressions.”

Quarto 13.5 x 9.75”. Hardbound in beige cloth covered boards no jacket as issued. Publisher’s description: In this long awaited exhibition of her new work, two years in the making, the distinctive nature of Saville’s giant, fleshy nudes, is both surprising and provocative; virtuoso nudes, reminiscent of the old masters’, yet employed to question societal obsession with an idealized, almost robotic, image of the female form. By portraying these “images of extreme humanness” that are so out of place in an anxious culture obsessed with eternal youth and beauty, Saville confronts the very essence of what it means to have an active mind in a decaying, dying body.

Its very title- ‘Ceasefire’, or literally ‘fighting peace’ - implies an uneasy dichotomy, a state of temporal stasis that sums up the sense of unreality that pervaded the city, a place locked in time around 1945, before the fall of the Berlin Wall. The tone of Waffenruhe echoes this history. It is gloomily, romantic, autumnal, dark.” -- Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History, vol.

This is one of those rare images that is worth a thousand others, where the fused glass stands in for all the wrecked bodies. The horror that this simple image evokes - more than all [Ken] Domon’s well meaning pictures of reconstructive operations - demonstrates conclusively that Tomatsu was right to abandon the literal in favour of the allusive and metaphorical as the most appropriate trope for describing the postwar Japanese dilemma.” Parr & Badger, The Photobook: A History, vol. 1 pg. 274-7
